For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories.

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?
Why I am Waiting:
Sign me up for anything with teens that is a dystopian where they have to go against society. This one sound extremely awesome with a weird hospital that might not be the safe place it claims to be. Sound very intriguing and I can't wait to read it. =]

Happy Reading. =]


  1. I kept trying to remember where I had heard this author's name before and then I remembered that she's the author of Glimpse and Waiting. This sounds so, so awesome. And I love how the dimensions of the cover make the wall so daunting and her so small!
